A Reader Appreciation Award

Boom! I've been awarded this lovely flowery award by the talented Spencer over yonder at SAHDandproud V2.0. If you've not already popped over there and checked out his blog, you ought to. Because it's brilliant. Like jam. Less sticky though.

As with any award there are rules (if you win an Oscar you are contractually obliged to have a go at Scientology. True fact.) and these are they:

1. Include the award logo somewhere in your blog.
2. Answer these 10 questions below
3. Nominate 10 to 12 blogs you enjoy. Or you pick the number.
4. Pay the love forward: Provide your nominee’s link in your post and comment on their blog to let them know they’ve been included and invited to participate.
5. Pay the love back with gratitude and a link to the blogger(s) who nominated you.

So then. Questions for me to answer. Prepare to learn just how exciting I am...

What is your favourite colour?

I'm going to make myself sound super awesome here, straight away. Brown. I wouldn't paint my house brown, but I like brown t-shirts and stuff. Also it's the colour of mud, a substance I'm very keen on.

What's your favourite animal?

I'm not really an animal person. I thought about this for quite a long time, but I can't name a favourite, they're all rubbish.

What's your favourite non-alcoholic drink?

During the summer I develop a mild addiction to Dr Pepper. In the winter I don't drink it at all. But I drink LOADS of tea. Which I don't drink during the summer. The current unseasonal weather is fucking with me somewhat.

Facebook or Twitter?

For years, Facebook.

I had a go at Twitter, spoke into the ether for a year, got followed by thirty-five people, several of whom were pornbots, never had any decent chat and gave up. Fail.

Then, I started a blog and decided to give it a Twitter account of its very own. Now I love it. It's the biggest time sink in my life and has gained me lots of advice, support and fledgling friendships. Woo Twitter.

I barely use Facebook any more.

So, somewhat long windedly, I guess that means my answer is Twitter.

What is your favourite pattern?

I'm not sure I have one. Man I'm dull. I do rather like flannel shirts, and the patterns on those. Do most people have a favourite pattern? 

Favourite number?

I don't have a specific one, but I do have a weird attraction to all sorts of numbers which hold some significance to me. Also palendromic numbers. I get a little bit excited when my car's mileage is one of those. 

Favourite day of the week?

Wednesday. It's the start of the downslope to the weekend, it used to be the day I played basketball. There's usually some good feeling in me on a Wednesday.

Favourite flower?

No. No flowers. I HATE flowers. They make my eyes stream and my nose itch and my life miserable. I love looking at them, but I'd happily never see another one if it meant I didn't get hayfever ever again.

What is your passion?

My wife and baby boy, of course. I loves 'em.

And now, a bit of tagging for some awesome blogs that I read:


  1. Yay! Thank you, and I am with you on the car-mileage palendromes. I am about to hand over my laptop to the clever mac-shop boys but will get straight on to this on its return, promise.

    Thanks dude x

  2. Ooh, thankyou thankyou :) I would launch into an award speech but... well... that could get embarrassing for everybody involved including my mum and dad for raising me, my other half and my son for providing me with blog fodder, you of course for giving me the award, the paps for keeping me in the media spotlight, my stylist for keeping me chic (lolz) and erm... *shuts up*

    Cheers m'dear x

  3. Ha Ha Excellent :-) xx
